Fall In Yosemite
Visiting Yosemite National Park is a treat. This year, I have a National Park Pass that I plan on enjoying to the fullest–the inaugural trip was a one day trek with our local Meetup Group. 6a.m. to Midnight is worth it!
There were still patches of fall colors and the reflections were stunning. Not a cloud in the sky–so had to be a little creative.
One of the secrets of Yosemite is Fern Springs, located in the Valley and just a small pullout area to park. Photographers know where and what it is–the smallest waterfall in Yosemite–6 inches for each step. This visit was before all the leaves filled the spring, so a reflection of the towering trees was visible. Fall colors are delightful and in spring–the Dogwoods are blooming. The next two photos were taken the next weekend–you can see the difference a few days and even 24 hours can make!
No reflections visible now!
And a bit of snow…this view was shared in my previous post as well.
A favorite spot of mine ( and many, I am sure!) is across the road from Fern Spring along the Merced River…
An advantage of being a passenger–is having your camera at the window. Just seems like Fall flew by to me!
A few trees are ready for winter…
Absolutely Stunning. All of them. These are different than your winter pictures but just as gorgeous honest. You’re a pro!

Thanks much, Bill. Fern Spring is a great place to shoot even when high noon and sun, because of the trees:)

Very nice collection of images, but I just adore that shot while you were in motion, what a creative way to capture fall. Well done.
